Ariana Grande would be honored with a Damehood, a high British royal award. The singer, who would receive the prize following the charity concert she organized for the victims of the attack in Manchester, would have refused it.
Grande would do this out of respect to relatives of those who died in the attack in 2017 at the Manchester Arena, report sources The Sun . There were then more than twenty dead at the attack, which took place after a concert by the singer.
“Ariana felt honored, but finds the tribute too quickly,” says the source. “She explained that she is still in the grieving process, just like the families of the victims.”
Grande would fear that if she accepted the price, this would probably be understood as an “insensitive action” and that she therefore “politely rejected”.
After the attack on 22 May 2017, Grande organized a benefit concert for the (family of) victims two weeks later. There were performances by Robbie Williams, Miley Cyrus and Grande himself.
Singer blew up a comeback concert before
The Queenhood (Knighthood for men, ed.) Is awarded by Queen Elizabeth to those who have meant something positive for society. When someone receives the award, the person can wear the title Lady (or Knight).
The singer became an honorary citizen of the city of Manchester. She has spoken more often about the trauma she has suffered after the bomb attack.
On Saturday it was announced that Grande canceled her first concert due to health problems after she broke her engagement with comedian Pete Davidson. It is not known what the artist exactly is wrong with.
